Description
From: Easy Going Scans

Yoshino Takigawa is visiting his friend's family grave. After getting there, he encounters Evangeline Yamato, a woman in search for his friend, Mahiro Fuwa, who left a month ago to find his family's killer without any clues to who it might be. Evangeline informs Yoshino that two places where Mahiro has been spotted have been quarantined, due to an epidemic.

When Evangeline is questioning Yoshino at gun-point, Mahiro comes out of nowhere and swiftly saves him and can stop bullets in mid-air, claiming to have a deal with a sorceress; not just any, but the strongest sorceress, Hakaze Kusaribe, who promised to help find his family's killer with her magic so he can kill the killer himself.

After saving Yoshino, Mahiro informs him about the epidemic, a curse that turns living things into metal, claiming the Kusaribe clan plans to revive the Tree of Zetsuen that could destroy the world.

Kinda Different   
Rating: 9.0 / 10.0

It's always interesting when your main protagonists are just a little bit off in the head and hard to figure out. I have a feeling this Yoshino guy has more up his sleeve than we think and Mahiro just scares me. His single minded obsessiveness and unpredictability is kind of freaky, especially paired with those manic and slightly evil expressions of his. If I was his best friend, I think I'd be watching my back. The story's pretty different too--though I probably just got used to reading mangas about psychics and the sudden "magic" word and their easy acceptance of sorcerers threw me off. It's pretty exciting though, and the art is beautiful and the transitions smoothly done.

This series leaves me on the edge of my seat wanting to read more. With the writing skills of Shirodaira Kyou who did Spiral which is one of my favorite series. This story is about Yoshino and Mahiro who want to find the killer of Mahiro's sister Aika in order to get revenge. Mahiro has been searching with the help of Hakaze a magician stuck on a deserted island only able to contact him through a magic doll. This series is filled with betrayal, mistrust, and interesting characters who will do what they must, throw in some interesting plot twists and you have this great story which will keep you on the edge of your seat.

To add in a comment about what blackmokona in the post underneath said the story is not really made into some epic fantasy but more about the characters and especially Aika's death and the mystery surrounding it.

With only two chapters translated out, I can't really judge it. But it looks promising. The art is pretty excellent as well. Or at least, in my opinion anyways.
But an Iron-epidemic/curse-thing? It sounds more like alchemy than magic to me >.>...

Shocked by the "average" rating

This is much better than the anime. Great art and action from time to time. But I think the best description would be "witty". The story is unpredictable, each character is well portrayed (and awesome), and most of all I just love strategical/psychological battles.

this was the best anime/ manga ever, i started and never stopped
the story is soo unpredictable,
interesting and has a lot of twists in the story
the art is great and i love the depth of the characters
especially Yoshino
there is great mix of fantasy action and mystery,
but the story really involves the charaters state of mind
which i enjoy

Better than I thought it'd be

I put off reading this for the longest time, mostly because the cover didn't draw me.

I was mistaken. So far, the characterization is pretty good, and the story is also enjoyable. The art, which I thought I wouldn't like at first, is actually pretty good and fits the story well. I'm hard pressed to find any faults with the story or the characters, but the series doesn't give me a feeling of "wow, I have to tell everyone about this."

It's not average, but not spectacular. Somewhere in between.

I just read 13 chapters in one go for the first time. The plot-building was amazing, as should be expected of the writer of Vampire Juu... Ah, I'll look up the name later. Juuji...I wanna say kai but I think that's wrong.

Didn't get any sleep cause of this and a few other things so I'll review more coherently later.

Interesting so far

Depending on where this goes, it could be a very good manga or a an 'ok' one. So far so good. I would recommend you give it a try. I like most of the characters and the art is nice.
I rate manga by docking a point for each thing I don't like about it. So far, it's a 9.5.

EDIT: Plots-wise it gets better further in. I've read the raws up to recent chapters and there is a certain good twist around chapter 40 I think.

As someone who had enjoyed this series since it was first translated, the twist in chapter 30 was the straw that broke the camel's back. The story-line was already shaky with the introduction of a **** character around chapter 23 but still... that was just too weird...

I'm avidly following the anime right now. The plot is relatively the same, as far as I can tell... And it moves faster than the manga. Plus the action looks better animated wink

The main characters are deep. They aren't ordinary boys. This character's depth keeps things interesting because they are unpredictable. My favorite character is Yoshino.

Illustration is quite cute, though I like the one in the anime way better.
